I've been using this product for almost a year now. The first bottle lasted 10 months using it 2-3 times per week. Application method is everything in getting this to work for you. I have thin, fine hair that gets weighed down easily. I do not use the tip to put this in my hair (that creates patches of white that are hard to distribute). Rather I sprinkle a little powder in my hands, turn my head upside down and work it into the roots. After 15 min or so, I brush through my hair with a natural bristle brush. I've been able to go from washing my hair every day to washing it every 4th day because of this product. It smells wonderful and gives my hair extra body and fullness.
I love that this is a powder and not a stinky aerosol spray. That also means that this lasts MUCH longer. I use it every other day when I don't wash my hair since I have very oily roots. I've been using it for almost a month and barely any is missing out of the bottle. A little goes a long way.
First the bottle is small but it seems like if you use wisely it will last awhile. It smells GREAT! But the bottle and the way to use is HORRIBLE! The first time I had so much product on my scalp I had to wash it. Not that mention how much gets on your clothes and well everywhere while applying! Some ladies said they just don't open all the way but it's still a crappy bottle. I had a old powder play bottle by big sexy hair and cleaned it out and put this dry shampoo in it. It's essentially a salt shaker type thing and works SO much better than the bottle it comes it. The bottle is the only reason I gave 4 stars and not five.
I think I've tried close to 20 different brands of dry shampoo over the years and this is hands down the most effective and best all around. For the last several years I have been using organic, non-aerosal powders like this one (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Acure, Acure for Brunette Hair, etc.) Here's why this one beats them all: - Effectiveness: I have VERY oily scalp; used to have to shampoo daily, then every other day with dry shampoo but it still felt greasy. I can go a week without shampooing now, applying this product the night I shower and a couple days after that. - Economy: A little goes a very long way. Lasts forever - Color blending: my roots are brown. Unlike others, this doesn't make me look gray or powdery, even in the sun - Smell: delightful lavender, not overpowering but still fresh - Organic and eco-friendly
Love love love this and can FINALLY stop trying new brands. :)
I've used this product several times now and I really like it. I have tried those name brand aerosol type in the past and the butane immediately irritated my scalp, reek of chemicals and enhance that gross dirty hair smell. I've also tried other powder brands, but again, could smell that synthetic scent. This product doesn't seem to contain anything that irritates my scalp and the light lavender scent is wonderful. My hair smells freshly washed. I have my natural haircolor (light brunette) and I have no problem with this product showing. I generally wash my hair every 3 days because it's winter. In the summer I wash every other day. The applicator works well. I just part my hair at the crown, sides and nape and apply it. Then gently rub it through my scalp as though washing my hair. A quick blowdry on cool setting helps to rid of any dust here and there and off I go. It adds a little volume at the roots too. I will keep using this brand.
I'm trying to get rid of a lot of toxic chemicals in my life. I used to buy Batiste and go through a bottle in a week. It seemed to work but my hair felt gunky if I would scratch my head. Plus breathing in all that aerosol was gross and unhealthy. I did some research and decided to try this. I open the bottle just slightly and slowly draw lines on my scalp down different sections of my hair. I then use an old makeup brush and really scrub it in to my hair. I then use a hairbrush and run it through to help pull the powder down the hair shaft. I had read a review that said to do this, and I have to agree it works. My hair has great volume and it doesn't look greasy at all. It took me a few times to figure out the technique but it's very much worth it. I do have very fine blonde hair. My hair gets greasy so fast, I'm amazed at how well this works and very impressed. The bottle is tiny but you will be surprised how little you need to use. It will last you several months. It has a very light lavender smell and is not overpowering at all. If you want a more natural approach, definitely give this a try!
It is just as described. Would recommend to others :) My hair is ALWAYS oily at the roots and the aerosol cans of dry shampoo make my hair stiff, but this stuff...this stuff is amazing! Adds volume, doesn't completely dry out my hair, and does not leave residue or build up (I have black hair so this is very important). Also, my hair smells super fresh after using. Would give more stars if I could!
I used this a few times now and it's still full so that's a big plus; especially since it's small. This should last you a long time. Being all natural is the way to go. Did you ever read the ingredients in over the counter dry shampoo spray? More often then not, the #1 ingredient is butane. If you are spraying this on your scalp is is seeping through your skin and into your blood stream. You are poisoning yourself. Stop poisoning yourself and go natural.
I would of given this product a 5 star review if it wasn’t for the bottle dispenser top being problematic. Otherwise this product is fantastic! I recently learned that most dry shampoos have alcohol and other harsh agents and wanted a healthier option and this is the one! It only has a few ingredients and a light scent that does not overpower. It improves my hairs appearance and even feels better to the touch. It adds a little volume to my hair which is also fantastic because my hair tends get flatter the longer it goes without a proper shower. With this product my hair can go longer between washes even when I run three miles! A little product does go a long way and if you add too much it will leave your scalp feeling a slight itchy sensation. So, like anything else you just need to practice to know what amount is the right amount for you.
I'm a hairstylist who has tried all the dry shampoos for my super oily hair. From $4 drug store all the way to $40 professional, but none of them were able to do what this stuff does. If you actually have oily hair, you NEED a POWDER dry shampoo. The aerosols are not powerful enough, plus they run out so quick. The powder goes much further and absorbs the oil much better. Also very important, use this at night before you go to bed. Most people's hair gets oily as you sleep, so putting it in before that happens, helps absorb the oil as it's happening. If you wait until your hair is already oily, it's not gonna work very well. This one is also the least expensive powder dry shampoo I've found, it works amazing, and has a lovely lavender scent. I just wish we sold it at my salon! I tell all my clients about this dry shampoo because it's the only one that has worked for me!
